H.        PUBLIC EXPRESSION AND INFORMATION

            PERSONS WISHING TO ADDRESS THE BOARD

Some topics are not permitted to be discussed in the public forum; for example, any topic
related to an employee or that can be implied to be related to an employee; special education

            According to the district’s Civility Policy #3150, the district promotes mutual respect, civility, 
            and orderly conduct among District employees, parents, and the public.  The policy is not 
            intended to deprive any person of his or her right to freedom of expression.  Rather, seek to 
            maintain, to the extent possible and reasonable, a safe, harassment-free workplace for 
            students and staff.  In the interest of presenting teachers and other employees as positive 
            role models, we encourage positive communication and discourage volatile, hostile, or 
            aggressive actions.  This District seeks public cooperation with this endeavor.
